A Delightful Surprise
11 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

I had to give this the highest rating. It is original. I have read too many histories of the Titanic to remember them all. After 100 years, can there be anything left to say about the tragedy? Yes! The producers and directors take an entirely forgotten tale, add in drama and "history" and come up with an original contribution to Titanic lore. I added quotes around "history" because almost none of the electricians, engineers, engine room crew or technical staff survived. By necessity, much of this historical drama had to filled in. No one was left to tell the tale. A viewer, though, has the impression that the writers made much effort to be true to the characters, the situations, and the times.

This is a must-see for Titanic buffs or for those who just love tales of a slower and more adventurous time, when people could afford to take a week to cross the Atlantic, men tried to act with honor, and life was filled with a now-forgotten grace.

If you have an interest in the days of the ocean liners or the romance of a bygone era, if you want to hear a lost tale of the Titanic, if you have respect for the people who make things run (like ships' engineers) try this movie. It will not disappoint.
